According to the World Bank, Country Partnership Frameworks aim to make the organization’s work “more systematic, evidence-based, selective, and focused on the Bank’s twin goals of ending extreme poverty and increasing shared prosperity in a sustainable manner.”

Okoa Uchumi’s letter calls on the World Bank to ensure that the process includes timely and accessible information and documentation, as well as open, inclusive, and accessible consultations, open to all those who would like to attend.
